Peerspace is on a mission to bring people together, starting with making it easy to find and book the perfect places to meet, create, and celebrate. Our Airbnb-like marketplace uncovers the world’s most unique spaces - such as lofts, rooftops, and art galleries - and makes them bookable for meetings, events, and film or photo shoots.

Over 2 million people have attended activities booked in Peerspace locations, and we’re looking for people who want to help us reach the next 10 million.

For those of us at Peerspace, it's our goal to make every unique space a potential source of inspiration and creativity for businesses and professionals across the world. For us to fully realize this dream we're going to have to be the first to solve some very difficult problems that exist in the short-term real estate market. That's where you come in.

We need that one-of-a-kind problem solver who can deeply empathize with the issues that guests and hosts currently face, uncover the latent needs that are unmet in the market, and help us create engaging user-experiences that replace the current frustrations with delight. As a Product Designer, you will use every tool at your disposal to build an amazing product -- depending on the day this might be attending user research activities with our customers, creating wireframes to model and communicate a user flow, building an interactive prototype, getting to pixel-level perfection in a mockup, or sitting side-by-side with an engineer during implementation of your designs. You will work on a variety of projects, from conceptual to tactical to growth. Your work will actually ship, every two weeks. You will have a direct impact in our customers’ experience and the overall trajectory of the business.

  • Translate design decisions into style guides, patterns and reusable components for other teammates to use to build the product
  • Implement strategies for standardizing design patterns across the site to speed development velocity across the team
  • Work directly with our engineers, delivering assets and assistance in building fully functional user interfaces
  • Help build a culture that promotes and values design throughout the organization
